Jeff Hartnell

11/05/1945 - 08/21/2018


Condolence From: Justin McAtee, Columbus, OH
Condolence: What a great man! I miss working with him, and was really shocked and saddened when I learned of his passing. The last time I saw him was about 7 years ago, and it's just hard to believe he's not still out there running around, being his booming, enthusiastic self. He was so much fun to be around, and was such a gifted storyteller and leader. He also seemed to be a real man of integrity, and I respected him for that. My condolences and prayers to his family, and to all Westerville for that matter.

Condolence: My memories of Mr. Hartnell go back to when he was my history teacher for a couple of years at Leslie. He influenced me in so many ways, the effects which have lasted for over 45 years. He was truly the best teacher of history and life that I ever had. My heart breaks for his wife Val (I remember you too!) and their family. May he rest in eternal peace.

Condolence From: Larry McClatchey, Dublin, Ohio
Condolence: I was saddened to hear of Jeff's recent passing. We didn't get together often in recent years, but when I talked to him last fall he was as outgoing as ever. As was typical for him, his call to me concerned Val and his family. Cindy joins me in sending sincere condolences to Val, Ben, Nathan and Sarah and all of Jeff's extended family. He will be sorely missed.
